  • Happy Mint Julep Friday!!!

    There’s nothin’ more invitin’ than whilin’ away a hot summer day on your porch swing while sippin’ a frosty Mint Julep.

    We’ve dropped the gs because that first line should be read with a pronounced southern drawl. After all, the birthplace of the mint julep was below the Mason-Dixon Line. While the cocktail has been around for at least two centuries, Mint Juleps today are more commonly associated with the Kentucky Derby, a two-day horse racing event in which nearly 120,000 mint juleps are quaffed each year during the first weekend of May.

    So as we raise our glasses to toast National Mint Julep Day on May 30, let’s honor the drink for its longevity, good taste and as a fine symbol of southern hospitality.

    The history of the Mint Julep

    Have a great weekend all you wonderful Designers!!

    Do to the sparse current quotage I will give you extra classics ... always a treat

    They charge extra for white ink. An awful lot.

    Perhaps you should take your printer back to the store, they'd probably love to hear all about it.

    I used to buy starbursts in packs of 25. Then when I started doing newspaper ads for auto dealers I had to get packs of 50 or more and it got outta hand. But those days are over. I can't afford them anymore unless the client REALLY needs it, then I pass the cost along to them. I mark it up a bit, to $25 per starburst.

    The licensing fees are killer. I get them from the source, the Aztec Nation, who first came up with the starburst over 2000 years ago and have never gotten their fair share of royalties from their material.

    We don't want to go pirating starbursts now do we? I know some designers who do. Bad, bad designers.

    Marketing- "This is still a rush job that needs to be done as quickly as possible will this bulb fit (holding up a flashlight bulb) or should we get yet another one?

    Graphics- "This bulb won't fit either. I need the correct bulb before I can complete this project!"

    Marketing- "Can you give me a drawing so I will know exactly what you want?"

    Graphics- "Here you go here is your drawing. Please get me the correct bulb this time"


    Marketing- "I lost the drawing can you give me another copy?"

    Graphics- "Here is the %^&**!? drawing! Now get me the correct bulb!!"


    Marketing- "Here is the correct bulb. We promised the client they could have this right away why aren't you done yet??"

    Graphics completes the job in 30 seconds.

    So much for asking for help from Graphic Designers.

Have you ever seen the movie Captain Ron - if you believe everything you see on TV as I do you'd know that there are all kinds of pirates... and gorillas still in the world, it's a profitable business...

    yup, I had an MRI a couple years ago. Did you see any of the scans they did afterward? I got to see a few, and was able to return to work having seen proof that I actually DO have a brain.

    Happy Friday Folks! Life's going to be changing for a second time really soon, still got a laundry list of things to do before that happens. This weekend brings electrical work, some painting and laying some carpet in between a couple visits from family and friends we haven't seen in a while.

    Thanks for the quotes Kittie (and Buda)
    Design is not decoration.

      Old Keyare quotes are the best. I wish we still had the one about Starbursts causing blindness.
      Thanks for the quotes Kittie!

      Oh, and if you want the old Mousymouse thread here it is:
      Had to go look that one up. LOL.

            Happy Friday! It is Saturday here, have to go for a blood test but nothing else planned for the day. Just the way I like it. Loving the Kenyare quotes too!
            It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

              Reply to Advice on simple banking-style design
              Too many words.
              I grew up playing text only adventure games. The banking was always the easiest part. You put your loot into whatever passed for a ''bank'' and kept on playing.

              Hey all,

              I searched for any article like this, however found none. I'm figuring that is because of the strange nature of this project.

              Advice on simple banking-style design
              So, for a little background, I'm working on a text-based web game as a passion project. I'm no designer; far from it. I'm working on the banking feature of the game, which as a few features. The banking...
